In Honor of Pantone’s 2015 color or the year, I wanted to showcase ways to use this deep red color. Usually associated with fall and winter weddings, deep reds can actually be used year round with the right color combinations. Most commonly used for bridesmaid dresses and flowers, I also love when brides incorporate fruits and of course, red velvet cake! Also visit Short and Sassy for a look at short bridesmaid trends.
